Hi,

Question is essentially the title: Is it possible to have an effect applied to a clip but not affect those beneath?

The clip I want to apply the effect to is the one at the top (highlighted in the picture) without affecting those beneath it. The highlighted clip is a Title template. I appreciate that technically ,I could move the laye/clip that's highlighted down the list or put it even below the A-roll itself to ensure the A-roll clip isn't affected, but then the clip that has the effect cannot be seen.

If the answer is a no, then it's not an issue and I'll just look for another way of doing the effect I want to do.

Thanks

There is no image attached. Normally an effect only the clip it's applied to. If it's a title, then it might work differently depending on exactly what title you're using.

It depends on the title.
Some use the underlying lanes others don't.
In the little preview icons you can see which will use the background: those which will show this default landscape

If you don't see it doesn't mean it it won't, but it is likely it won't use.

I you own Motion you can open a copy of the title and clear the background.

Just a thought but wouldn't turning the clip into a compound clip isolate the properties for that clip and that clip only for you?

Yes.
You can attach a title (with background processing) to a gap (or a generator or another title with no background) then make a compound and then move to final destination

Thanks for the responses. I didn't realise the image didn't attach. Hopefully it's attached this time,

I forgot to mention that this solution worked where you create a compound clip and then use that compound clip in the timeline. This will definitely help my workflow. Thanks Andreas 👍
